10 Castlery Couch Finds Your Living Room and Budget Will Love
When I was in my early 20s and living in New York City as an intern, I was fascinated by this woman in my office. She seemed to have it all: intimidatingly chic, shock-white hair; a cool tech job in Soho; sensible yet stylish black outfits; and the wisdom of decades in the real world. Toward the end of the summer, she gave me one piece of advice: “Don’t buy the couch yet.” In other words, “Don’t settle down until you’ve allowed yourself to drift a bit.” I didn’t put down roots long enough to require a couch of my own until I was 27.
But I could see why my smart coworker had advised me to wait: Other than the fact that I’d be tied to this cumbersome new piece of furniture, I now had to find something in my price range that I didn’t mind hanging onto for at least a decade. Maybe my research process would have been easier if I’d known about Castlery back then; this brand has couches in a variety of styles and fabrics, many of which are under $2,000. What’s more, they speak the language of the millennial or Gen Z customer on a tight budget: You can do monthly Affirm payments for their products.
Here are 10 Castlery options that will make you happy you finally committed to that couch — and probably impress the sophisticated older woman in your office, too. Your wise aunt figure would also be happy to know you can protect your purchase with a two-, three-, or five-year warranty option and get an extra 5% off if you pair your new couch with an ottoman, coffee table, sideboard, TV stand, or armchair.
